These efforts to help the horse racing industry had mixed impacts of a positive nature on the industry. JLARC recommends continuation of a reduction in the parimutuel tax—one of the initiatives to assist the industry as well as identification of a funding source for agricultural fairs, formerly supported by a portion of the parimutuel tax.
